WE SHOULD ALL BE MINERS




This is a new year and I am in a good mood to give you diamond, gold, silver or even platinum. Just mention your preferred choice!

If you took the words you read now to heart. That makes you a bigger joker than I am. 

The honest truth is that the most satisfying gift you could ever have is one given to you by YOU.

Whatsoever, you desire is waiting for you to take action to make it happen? What are you willing to do to make it a reality? How bad do you want it?
How long do you want to sit and watch like a lonely puppy and hoping a bright light will shine through?

I have got news for you. There is no bright light coming to you. That bright is YOU

Confucius is quoted to have whispered, "All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.”  He was not far from the truth.

Those fine metals hanging on your neck, sitting comfortably on your earlobe, caressing your ring or perhaps your middle finger didn't just find its way to the jewelry shop. Someone made that happen. The miner did his job. 

If you wish to see something beautiful. If you wish to make your dreams come alive and set your goals rolling. You have got work to do too. Get your hands dirty.

There are chances that you have tried in the past and your execution went down the drain. Albert Einstein thinks if you start over the same way you did previously then you are insane.


The definition of insanity is not walking about in shredded clothing's or perhaps naked while you mumble meaningless words. It is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”

It's time to change your game plan. Ensure not to have the same cards you were dealt with at the start of the game at it's climax.

Whatever you do, be a miner. Get the work done.

WHY I WON'T BE BUYING ANYTHING AGAIN FOR A LIFETIME

Heads up, people! 

Walking into a shop to purchase an item does not look appealing to me anymore. This is one of my decisions for the new year being that if something is not worth it then there is no point buying it especially trying to impress another fellow. 

I have chosen to stick to buying experiences rather 'things.' One of my observation is that experiences cannot be stolen or compromised. They stick like your gum sap sticks to a tree. 

So maybe before you buy that expensive Emporio Armani wristwatch or Jimmy Choo shoes, it might be imperative to checkmate if there are experiences that same amout can buy you. Don't get me wrong, it is as clear as crystal that you need to shop for clothings, food, phones or luxury from time to time but bear in mind that your happiness can't be tied to any item. That vibe you get is nothing but a fleeting one . 

“One of the enemies of  happiness is adaptation,” Thomas Gilovich reveals. “We buy things to make us happy, and we succeed. B…

CHIOMA VANESSA : A FASHIONPRENEUR MOTIVATED BY PASSION AND CREATIVITY TO CHART A PATHWAY

Chioma was that child that will send you hiding your clothes and wrappers far away from her reach for the fear that she will tear them in shreds out of the zeal of designing and making clothes. Her first skirt was made at the age of twelve. 
"Nobody taught me to sew, nobody close to me sews, I didn't even know it was a 6 pieces skirt I sewed till I finally went to a fashion school," She says with an air of humour. 


"I also made bags and a pair of slippers from an old Jean material that happened to be my old skirt. My mum marveled at the thought of Jean slippers then but now we see Jean slippers everywhere." She continues. 
Chioma Vanessa who prefers to go by the alias 'God's favourite daughter' is a graduate of the Federal University of Technology Owerri, an entrepreneur and the present CEO of Nessa Design and Stitches (NDS). A young Fashion and Designing outfit that not only makes great outfits but also runs mini fashion tutorials.
